Re: sothern red cedar?
i got a mix of cedar species from the local lumber yard, im not sure exactly how do identify all of them, but i do know some. i have some cedar thats really soft and light with a beautiful maroonish color...it could be what you have. it works well for me when i want something really boyunt, but i have not tested long enough to determine its durability. roc or suds should probably chime in on that one, im curious too...maybe a lesson on wood species?
